Facebook scam investigation underway in Fiji

Police have confirmed that they are now investigating a bank account in which money was allegedly deposited by victims of a facebook scam in Fiji.

A case was lodged with police recently where a person created a fake profile of another person on Facebook by getting the photos from the victim’s profile, setup a bank account and started asking people to deposit money into the account in return for items that he was selling.

Police have earlier confirmed that over $1,000 was deposited into the account which was later withdrawn.

Police have joined hands with the Financial Intelligence Unit to investigate this case.
